nonstop. vice president is in colorado and paul ryan is holding rallies in pennsylvania, virginia, florida, and ohio. so ohio indeed could be the biggest battleground of the election. the race there is very tight. a just released cnn/orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is about to speak at a rally in mentor, ohio. he is at least in the building, we understand. and so is our white house correspond dan loathian. the president's schedule is packed today. he isn't just campaigning. he is also keeping a close watch on the storm which he says really is his first priority. >> reporter: that's correct. white house officials saying that president did get updates, briefings overnight. this morning he went to fema headquarters in washington to get a briefing in person, to get a sense of what is taking place with regards to the flooding, the power situation. he had some of his top officials in the room with him. he also spoke via video conference with the
of this campaign. if you count debuke, why when they're not taking anything for granted. and paul ryan, that's his home state. so his edition to the romney ticket has made that reach for the pthd. it's still polling to the president's way. it just shows you how cloesz this fight really is. now the president's closing message, don, a lot of countering the romney themes. romney has been talking about how he's the candidate of change. the president is saying uh-uh, not so fast, that's me. and going back to his old message saying governor romney's party brought gridlock to washington. that's what the president is saying. don't let that candidate and that message suck you in because he insists, he's the candidate change. listen to this. >> we are kountdi they're kount on you to be so worn down that you just give up. you walk away. you leave them in power. in other words, wisconsin, their bet is on cynicism. they think they can outlast you. they figure yeah, these guys may g enthusiastic, but, yeah, overtime, that enthusiasm fades away and we're still here. but wisconsin, see, my bet is on you. my bet i

. along with the economy. democrats have tried to link republicans to paul ryan's plans to turn medicare into a voucher program, something democrats say would be disastrous for seniors. republicans believe they have neutralized that message by arguing obama care hurts seniors by slashing medicare. redistricting will have a big impact, helping republicans. >> for the most part, republicans because they made such overwhelming gains not only in congress but in state legislatures last year, they were able to control the redistricting process in a lot of key states. for example, north carolina, where democrats will probably lose a couple seats this cycle. >> gop gains look likely in districts from north carolina to arkansas, among others. in fact, party operatives say they even put traditional blue states like rhode island and massachusetts into play. democrats are trying hard to unseat gop incumbents in blue states like california, new york, and illinois. and could see gains in maryland and florida. so why do these house races matter? members of congress will have to make big decisions in th
, wisconsin is leaning fairly heavily in president obama's favor. >> reporter: that's right. now, paul ryan has been seen as an asset, obviously, to governor romney and he has been making a whole lot of appearances. i'll tell you, the crowd behind me is getting excited, ashleigh, because air force one is taxing over towards us where president obama is going to be coming out shortly and making his remarks. yes, paul ryan has been an asset to governor romney. it's why some are saying the race here has been pretty tight, although there is a small lead, a consistent lead, for president obama. today we saw "wall street journ journal" nbc news poll, three points up the president is here in wisconsin. yesterday there was a poll in milwaukee, a marquette university poll that had the president up by much more, eight points. you talk to the obama campaign, they'll point to that marquette poll and they'll say it's more accurate. it seems likie internal polls ae in between the two. the bottom line, while he has a lead that is significant, you have to pay attention to it, it's not quite comfortable. tha
over mitt romney in this latest poll, which is why mitt romney and paul ryan are stu stumping there today after modifying their plans. they were going to be in virginia, but because of the storm now they're in ohio. as you see here, the two rally supporters just a short time ago in salina, ohio. they have both spent several days in the buckeye state and have more on their calendar. let's talk a little more about the direction of that state and the voting electrorate has your own new polling out this morning showing a dead heat there. obama and romney both pulling 49% of support out of likely voters. this is in line with that tightening national race according to a number of major polls. so why is, or is it your view, that ohio is kind of the microcosm of the country? >> ohio is, indeed, fredricka. it always is. it's tied this time, but if you were to compare, let's say, texas or utah with new york and put them all in one state, you would have ohio. >> so the president has traveled to that state at least 24 times, mitt romney somewhere more than 40 times this year alone. both o
convention, right? and this is what he's doing. what would be nice for either paul ryan or mitt romney or some other large political figure within the republican party is to just do what barbara walters did which is to say, dude, stop it. you're embarrassing us, you're embarrassing the conversation, you're embarrassing the country and you need to stop it. instead, they're silenced. that silence bothers me. to me, it suggests that, it makes us uncomfortable but if it can get us votes, keep him around. people like him and ann coulter, we need to say, you need to go away because you're not part of the future that we want. >> we're going to have another segment on this and other outlandish things being said on the campaign trail. do you think more republicans should come out and say, please stop this, it's not productive? what do you think? >> i think the worst thing we could do for donald trump is not talk about him. i think that's what would hurt him the most. he was trying to help with mitt romney that, i don't think he achieved that. if he offers $5 million to charity and to self-depor
court. stansville, wisconsin, that is paul ryan's hometown just about 20 minutes north of beloit. you're looking at live pictures where the vice president is going to be speaking shortly. biden's visit comes just today after the president's trip to green bay, and here's why. take a look at the latest cnn poll of polls for wisconsin. of likely voters president obama leads with 51%. mitt romney has 44%. this is an average of several polls. now, one man, he was so desperate for gas in new york, he reportedly pulled a gun in a waiting -- waiting in the line there. you can see. we'll show you how desperate this situation has become. i don't spend money on gasoline. i am probably going to the gas station about once a month. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the gas station such a small amount that i forget how to put gas in my car.

a campaign event here in ohio tomorrow morning after this event with paul ryan in a few minutes. and then he goes to wisconsin and iowa, two states that should be protected from hurricane sandy for the time being. but, don, i have to tell you, a lot of this is very interesting to watch because we're all sort of wondering how is this hurricane going to affect the race? which candidate will it affect more? will it affect the president because it will be taking him off the campaign trail. he won't be able to campaign quite as much. or will it make him perhaps appear more presidential because he'll be looking at storm damage and that sort of thing? the romney campaign was asked about that earlier today. they did not want to speculate but the obama campaign is also concerned about it because of how this storm could put a damper on early voting. that has according to conventional wisdom been an advantage for the president. we'll have to see how this shakes out. just in the last hour, one campaign event canceled by the president and both campaigns have said, don, they're looking -- they're working
campaigning in ohio, he and paul ryan. at all three stops there, mitt romney was talking about the stops and his prayers for people in harm's way. take a listen. >> i know that right now, some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm, about to hit the coast and our thoughts and prayers are with the people who will find themselves in harm's way. >> reporter: romney today's got an event coming up in a few minutes in ohio. then it's on to iowa and then on to wisconsin as well. but his campaign is doing stuff to help people out back on the east coast, people being affected. andrea saul said in north carolina, new hampshire, pennsylvania and virginia, we'll be collecting supplies at our victory offices to deliver local storm relief. in virginia, we are loading storm relief supplies onto the romney bus to be delivered. it's not the same as going to a fema news conference like the president is doing. but romney is trying to do his part. >> cnn's political editor, paul steinhauser, for us live, thank you very much. for more on today's campaigning and how the storm is changing tho
virginia events scheduled for sunday and he's going to campaign in ohio with his running mate, paul ryan, instead. what that means is romney was supposed to campaign in northern virginia and richmond on sunday, two big, bellwether medium markets in virginia and now he's going to be campaigning in three small towns in ohio. it shows you how the storm is impacting the schedule. the flipside is that the storm could potentially, if it's damaging, take president obama off the campaign trail as well and have him come back to d.c. for emergency purposes to be the president of the united states, which we remember is his job. so you know, we have to see how this plays out, but schedules are being adjusted now through tuesday, so far, so we'll see what happens. >> that's as it pertains to the campaigning. then, long term, there are some states, connecticut among them, that have already declared states of emergency, and there are potential scenarios if some of the states take direct hits from the hurricane, power out for days if not more than a week, then that would impact the electronic balloting
thing going on at the same time. paul ryan's events this evening and tomorrow have also been scrapped for the time being. we're sort of in unchartered water, suzanne. this is not something that happens right before an election. it's sort of the mother of all october surprises. >> all right, jim. thank you. appreciate it. giver us details when you know a little bit more about his schedule. school is out for hundreds of thousands of college students in the storm's path. going to take a look at where.

, also did that in his convention speech. but if you look at what his budget and paul ryan's budget would do, it would decimate nasa. he also had a great story about a woman with a heartwrenching story about a woman with a kid with down syndrome. guess what? if he repeals obama care, that child will be in danger, because they will no longer be able to get insurance coverage because of that preexisting condition. and single moms, yes, his heart goes out to single moms, but he also wants to take away their free preventative care and single moms need it more than anybody else some those are the policies that really don't jive with his positive words. that's what the obama campaign will point out. >> okay, care to rebut? >> look, i think most of us are still reeling from sandy. we have been. and in these last two or three days staying away from these kind of attacks. i'm not sure maria got the memo, but i did. and you know, i think that the tone that both mitt romney and president obama have taken -- as reresumed campaigning is one of offering their proposals, offering their ideas. and by the
